ENGLISH CYMRAEG (to follow soon – apologies)
Bro Moelwyn Ministry Area is a group of Anglican churches in Southern Snowdonia, from Beddgelert in the north to Trawsfynydd in the south, including the towns of Blaenau Ffestiniog and Penrhyndeudraeth. Vertically the ministry area extends from sea level (the Afon Dwyryd estuary at Penrhyndeaudraeth and Maentwrog), to the summit of Snowdon!
To reflect the bilingual culture of this area, both Welsh and English are used in most of our services. Don’t worry – whichever language is used, you will have no problem following the service as our resources are bilingual and all preaching is in English.
Our vicar Rev. David Brownridge heads up a Leadership Team of Lay Readers and retired clergy who between them lead most of the Sunday morning services.
The services reflect the variety of the Anglican family, with traditional but family friendly Holy Communion and Morning Prayer the most common alternatives for Sunday morning. In addition, there is a growing number of more lively, less liturgical services, with a mixture of the best traditional hymns and also some modern songs lead by guitar and keyboard.

For historians, there is also the redundant church at Llanfrothen which is Grade 1 listed, and is famous for the actions of a young lawyer named David Lloyd George! The church is named after (and may even have been founded by) Saint Brothen although the main fabric of the building is 13th Century. Saint Brothen was brother to Saint Peris of Nant Peris and Llanberis. His feast day is October 18th.
